Trump Wants Schools Open In Fall, But If They Don’t, He’s Ready To Push For Expansion In School Choice

Published

President Trump has been leading a drive to reopen schools this fall, which has placed yet another target on his back for the leftist media and Democratic Party politicians who are willing to jump on him for whatever fork in the road he decides to take.

However, if it’s not possible to get schools open, Trump has stated that he’s also prepared to make a major push for expansion in school choice as a response.

Here’s what he had to say via The Washington Examiner:

“If schools do not reopen, the funding should go to parents to send their child to public, private, charter, religious, or home school of their choice. The key word being ‘choice,’” Trump told reporters at the White House last week. “If the school is closed, the money should follow the student, so the parents and families are in control of their own decisions. So we’d like the money to go to the parents of the student. This way, they can make the decision that’s best for them.”

“We feel that it’s very important, from the White House, to address … money for schools and ensuring that the money for schools enables students to make school choices, like actually going to a physically open school. So, right now, that’s where the discussions lie at the moment,” said White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany when describing the Trump administration’s priorities for the next coronavirus spending package.

Conservatives and libertarians have long advocated per-pupil expenditures following individual students, allowing them to escape failing public school systems for other institutions subject to parental choice. Suburban Republican voters with strong public school districts have been more reluctant to support ballot initiatives aimed at securing this outcome.

The main questions folks have about this is how Trump can promote school choice if local educational institutions opt to defy his calls to reopen and end up remaining closed.

When you look at the numbers, the federal government only provides 8.5 percent of education funding for grades K-12. Education is primarily a state and local issue, as there is no provision that discusses the federal government having the power to oversee education in the Constitution.

Many of the polls conducted in recent weeks show parents and local communities as a whole are very concerned about the potential threat opening public schools hold for spreading the coronavirus. Granted, most children seem to get by with only mild symptoms, but kids could spread the virus like crazy to those who are vulnerable.

We all know that schools are basically petrie dishes full of germs and bacteria.

That concern is certainly legitimate, but is it being overblown? Probably. But it seems we can’t really know for sure thanks to the lack of solid information available and the constantly contradictory studies being pumped out at lighting speed.

Well, it looks like we can file this report under DUUUUUHHHHHH!!! From The Daily Wire: Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels slammed President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview this week for the ongoing crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that Biden’s reversal of the last administration’s policies have caused a serious problem on the border. “When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border,” Dannels said. “As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It’s [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it’s okay to come in this country. This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is it’s forcing us back to 2019, where we had the largest what I call crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6Hqonas7k And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/brandonwenerd/status/1368026400456732674 https://twitter.com/govkristinoem/status/1367944560580648967 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1368046181721444352 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1368037566684033027
